"One of my favorite things about this property was the remote, secluded location and the wonderful "homey" decor inside. It feels like home away from home, very clean and well-maintained-everything labelled to make it easier. The loft area is so neat for the kids, we have epic ping pong tournaments in the basement, listened to music using the outdoor speakers, and cooked some awesome meals on the grill. There are TV's in every room (but who wants to be indoors!) The stairs down to the water are easy to manage but maybe not for anyone unsteady on their feet or elderly. It's a mini workout to come back up the stairs ; ) The road to get to the property seems precarious but i don't have 4 wheel drive on my car and i didn't have a problem at all! They had anything we needed on site, even an extra full fridge downstairs!!-just bring your own towels and confirm check-out time so you can be out before the housekeeper shows up, ooppss : ) and bring some wood for the campfire : )
Can't wait to come back again : )"

"We were pleased with the Railcar as soon as we pulled up, and once we saw the dock, we were even more pleased! Sipping coffee in the early morning on the dock, while watching the mist move across the lake and listening to the fish jump, was my favorite part of the whole trip! The pictures were spot-on, and the railcar could definitely accommodate for 8+ people. Yes, the hallways are narrow, but it's a RAILCAR! We found everything we needed (yes, my husband found the TV remote and was able to watch his News. LOL) and there were plenty of blankets for the cold nights and games for the whole family. The owners are very nice and accommodating, and are willing to answer any questions you may have before, during, and after your stay! Skaneateles Lake is GORGEOUS!"

"We had a wonderful family vacation at this Skaneateles Lake retreat. Our hosts, Janet and John, were very gracious. The lake was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed morning and evening kayak and canoe excursions. The accommodations were extremely clean and the cottage very cozy.
The location is excellent for easy day trips to some beautiful state parks. Would recommend Watkins Glen, Taughannock Falls and Chimney Bluffs in particular. They are beautiful and within easy distance of the "Camp." And a more picturesque Finger Lakes town than Skaneateles would be hard to come by.
We are looking forward to a return visit!!
